Mrs Davie’s and Mrs Tickell’s Spelling Group Week 5 Focus: adding ‘ing’
Handed out on Friday 14th October; Tested on Friday 21th October
This week you have been given 7 words to learn. For the test you will need to be able to spell the word and add ‘ing’ to it in the correct way.
These are the rules:
If the word has a short vowel sound and 1 consonant – you double the consonant and add ing
If the word has a long vowel sound and a consonant – you just add ing
If the word has a split digraph (ends in e) – you remove the e and add ing
Note: Spellings 1-7 focus on this week’s phoneme focus; spellings 8-10 are from either the Year 3 & 4 or Year 5 & 6 word lists.
